there. >>> well, president obama has made no secret. he wants to do sothing about gun violence, and he stood before the country yesterday with a concrete set of proposals. some of them executive actions, some of them some work that congress is going to have to do, but many of the things he talked about still leave a lot of questions unanswered, and my next guest has a lot of those answers, and is still trying to work through some as well. he's new york's police commissioner ray kelly. thanks very much for coming in. i know you were in d.c. for the event yesterday, and i'm sure you're still getting your head around a lot of what's been, it seems, put together in warp speed time. but just from what you do know, your reaction to the president's actions? >> my reactions, certainly positive. i think it's something that has been overdue. certainly mayor bloomberg has led the charge, so to speak, in this area, and the president, i think, in essence supported everything that the mayor has put forward. >> one of the big criticisms is that while assault-styled weapons sound terribly menacing and

exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel

because they say it is an important part of the >> gun control continues to be a hot topic in this country. and today vice president joe biden urged america's mayors to to help the obama administration in their efforts reduce gun violence. speaking at the u-s conference of mayors in washington today. biden says he doesn't want a repeat of tragedies such as last months school massacre in connecticut. >> i have been in this fight for a long time i have no illusions of the house distortions will come from all sides. and i know full well the political obstacles are not impenetrable. yesterday. president obama urged congress to adopt several other gun control measures. such as banningcapacity magazines. the vice president says the administration is ready to take on the politicalbiden also dismissed the n-r-a's proposal to place in america. >> pam: is tiger woods trying to get his way back? coming up, gary radnich. in a good evening, everybody let us take a look. >> we are going to get ready for a great football game. last year tophet we had a chance and is now this year we are going to find out
confrontational attitude towards that they try to atracking poll. 49% for obama. 67% in the polls four years ago. 18 point decline from that. the way that he is operating is not designed to make him more popular and bring the country together. >> now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate o
. i want everybody to understand i came from a different country and i love this country i served the military and came out and became a cop. what i want everybody to know and want president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible americans, human beings with our case, this country with be greater. >> i want to apologize we didn't get to hear from everybody tonight. i promise we will

. but it is -- it's stunning. you look at what's happening in the country. >> should kids be in a position to be mocked, maria? >> certainly i agree that limbaugh is limbaugh and no matter what president obama does, he's going to be against it. let's put that out front. i think we need to be very careful about using kids in politics and to seemingly advance a political agenda like rush limbaugh said. but let's also keep in mind that this event that happened in newtown happened to children. it's a very defining event in the collective soul and consciousness, not just of adults but of our children, carol. what parent in this country did not have to sit down with their children and i think will agrees with me on this point, to explain to them what happened. he's got kids. i've got kids. everybody with kids had to explain to them what happened. if my children then said to me, well, i would like to write president obama, whoever the president might be at the time, to tell them what i think and what i'm feeling, i would be absolutely okay with that. if the parents are okay with having their chil

obama said any confrontation with congress over the debt limit will hurt the american economy. >> shouldn't be surprising given all this talk that the american people think washington is hurting rather than helping the country at the moment. let's finish this debate. let's give our businesses and the world the certainty that our economy and reputation are still second to none. we pay our bills, we handle our business, and then we can move on because america has a lot to do. we've got to create more jobs we've got to boost the wages of those who have work. >> the president didn't mention another potential hit to the economy, higher payroll taxes that are shrinking millions of paychecks every year. jill schlessinger is editor at large for cbs' "money watch." what does this mean for the average person? people are starting to feel it, how much less money is in t in your pay sdmekcheck? >> when you look at the paycheck you'll have a bummed out reaction. $18 to $20 less if you make $50,000 or less it does matter. >> what exactly -- start us off with what is a pay
